Not as great as other UM shows I've heard.

Subject: What a fun halloween...
I think it really speaks to the talent embodied in Umphree's that they can throw a really great show fit for a Halloween and hit it out of the park. The show sounds great, and I really liked "The Triple Wide/Robot Rock". Quite different and awesome.

i can't say it's the best umph's show i have ever heard, but it's top 10 percentile. sound works just fine. what i really like about the show is the energy. they def had me cracking up a couple times. the ac/dc & ozzy mash-up was real funny man...

Have you ever listened to an audience recording before?
The recordist has no control over what the crowd does - be it chatting, screaming, or singing along.

If you want a recording that doesn't have the ambience & crowd - go to umphrey's live download site and purchase the SBD recording.
There is nothing that can be done to stop the crowd from talking.

I'm glad you enjoy the recording, and i'm sorry the crowd distracts from it. Maybe next time tell your friends to shut up and listen to the music ;)

Subject: Awesome concert!
This show was amazing, especially since it was on Halloween night. Everybody was in costumes, including the band, really fun!

Check out videos of some of their performance on YouTube:

The recording is great, thanks for providing it! One nitpick though: there is a constant chatter of people in the background, which is a bit distracting. It'd be great if it can be avoided in the next recordings.

Subject: Another Thriller
I can't believe how the nailed the Thriller/Another Brick mash-up. That's my favorite one of the night. The whole show is a thriller on this recording, which comes through very cleanly. Very entertaining UM!

Subject: One of the funnest UM shows I have been to...
Thanks for posting the show so quickly and making my day at work fly by. Made the trip to San fran from Denver and it was roughly my 70th time seeing the boyz. Worth every penny...

The recording is spot on and sounds like you were set-up in a great location in the Warfield. Five star fury for you my friend!
